The one who robs his father or mother
and says, “That’s no sin,”
is a companion to a man who destroys.
This is the way of an adulteress:
she eats and wipes her mouth
and says, “I’ve done nothing wrong.”
you claim, “I am innocent.
His anger is sure to turn away from me.”
But I will certainly judge you
because you have said, “I have not sinned.”
Lord, look! They set an ambush for me.
Powerful men attack me,
but not because of any sin or rebellion of mine.
For no fault of mine,
they run and take up a position.
Awake to help me, and take notice.
The one who speaks for himself seeks his own glory. But He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
But if you refrain from making a vow, it will not be counted against you as sin.
What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet.
For the law produces wrath. And where there is no law, there is no transgression.
